A real estate broker is responsible for the supervision and the conduct of the real estate brokerage business. He or she applies for and holds the license on behalf of the brokerage firm. This person is known as the “principal or representative broker.” A real estate salesperson works for and is supervised by the broker. The salesperson acts as the principal broker’s agent. All listings, although negotiated by a salesperson, are transacted on behalf of the principal broker.
The New York State real estate exam is conducted by the Department of State, NY and costs $15. Once you clear the exam, it will cost an additional $55 to get apply and get the actual license.
